Nostrand Av
Title:  Nostrand Av
Description:  The first time I rode into Brooklyn on the LIRR, the station at Nostrand Av still had a wooden platform. MTA finally put some money into the line, rebuilding the station with a concrete platform that was a vast improvement. While not as busy as the Main Line to Penn Station, the Atlantic Branch still carries almost as many trains, though the intermediate stops, this one and a station at Woodhaven in Queens that had only a few trains stop, were not heavily patronized.

Ex CNJ station
Title:  Ex CNJ station
Description:  Actually, the line was run jointly by the CNJ and Pennsy, but the station sign is pure Jersey Central. By the late 70's, it had seen better days.

Dutch door view
Title:  Dutch door view
Description:  One of the great things about riding on all the hand me down long distance cars was that almost all of them had Dutch doors, which the crews did not mind riders using. It was a real boon to photography. It is from that vantage point I took this arriving shot of the Allenhurst station on the New York & Long Branch.

Pretty station
Title:  Pretty station
Description:  The people of Little Silver, near Middletown, had done some sprucing up on their small station, and it was an attractive little building. There appears still to be work done on the chimney, as the top is wrapped up.

Standard plan
Title:  Standard plan
Description:  The LIRR built many of its stations to a standard plan, and the gambrel roofed stations can be seen all over the Island. One such is Roslyn on the Oyster Bay Branch, seen here from the west on a summer afternoon.

Gladstone
Title:  Gladstone
Description:  The end of the line on the Gladsone Branch was represented by this typical DLW frame building, seen here on a rainy day in November 1979. The EL lines retained their EL flavor long after the others changed. Here, the lettering on the train sitting at the platform only reinforces that image.

Station and tower
Title:  Station and tower
Description:  The station at Denville sits right between the Morristown Line on the right, and the Boonton Line on the left. The Boonton Line, during EL days, hosted the freights that would come off the cut off and head for Croxton. By this time, it was mostly commuter trains, Conrail having shifted its remaining trains on former EL lines to the ex Erie east of Binghamton, and most of the traffic to the ex PRR or NYC generally. The tower in the background controlled the switches and signals here, and was still active at this time. Note the EL speed sign at left on the Boonton Line.

Broad St station
Title:  Broad St station
Description:  Most people, when they think of the train station in Newark, think of Penn Station, which is understandable, as it is the busier of the two by far. DLW also had a station, on Broad St, just off the Passaic River bridge. Here we see it as we approach on a westbound train

Erie station
Title:  Erie station
Description:  In 1984 the Erie station at Mahwah stood largely as it always had, even retaining the Erie station sign. Mahwah was an important location on the EL, as it had a Ford plant that generated a lot of traffic both in and outbound.

NK Tower
Title:  NK Tower
Description:  The trains using the CNJ after 1967 used a route that was cobbled together from Newark Penn Station, reaching the Jersey Central via a connection from the Pennsy to the Lehigh Valley at Hunter tower on the PRR, connecting to the LV at NK, then to the CNJ via a new connection at Aldene. Here Im on board a Newark bound train about to take the connection to the ex Pennsy. Straight ahead is Conrails Oak Island yard.

Erie station
Title:  Erie station
Description:  The Erie had several lines in Orange couny, one of which was the Newburgh Branch that had the distinction of running underneath Moodna Viaduct. The next station south was Washingtonville, which at the time this photo was taken in 1984 was an antique shop. Twenty some years after the line was abandoned, the Erie station sign is still on the building.

Title:  Long time, no paint
Description:  This overpass in Roselle Park NJ shows its heritage. There were quite a few street overpasses on the LV and CNJ that did not get repainted for many years after those roads vanished into Conrail. It was always good to see them.

LIRR station
Title:  LIRR station
Description:  The LIRR station at Great Neck was a big place. It had a ticket window that was staffed til around 1800, as it served a community of approximately 57000 in the mid 80s, and had always been a major stop, as it was the place where the branch went from double to single track. Thats still true, and the town has grown since. The building on immediate left is a restaurant, the station itself just beyond. The whole complex was grade separated around 1925, putting it below street level, with Middle Neck Rd on the west end, and Barstow Rd on the east, with a walkway about mid platform. A New York bound train is seen arriving from Manhasset.

Central Centerpiece
Title:  Central Centerpiece
Description:  Almost literally, since Buffalo was just about mid way through the New York-Chicago journey. The classic art deco station served for 50 years, just a little too far east of downtown Buffalo. When passenger loadings tailed off in the 60s, there was nothing else to bring people out to that part of town, and the station area languished. Eventually closed by Amtrak in 1979, it sits today largely returning to nature, as there is no practical maintenance. In 1986, it still looked rather stately from the driveway.

Long history at Brooks Av
Title:  Long history at Brooks Av
Description:  While it now has a large RS herald adorning the tower, this station goes back a long way. CSX had it last, but only for a couple of years before selling the lines that were once predecessor Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh to the Gensee & Wyoming. Prior to CSX, it was Chessie, the station being part of their B&O, who acquired it along with the lines from Butler PA to Buffalo & Rochester from the BR&P in 1917. R&S is now using it as their offices in Rochester.

Tower and an oops
Title:  Tower and an oops
Description:  The tower is the former New Haven Fremont tower, which controlled the connection from the LIRR to the New Haven line to Bay Ridge. The line was electrified, and several trains per day came and went to the ferry dock there behind New Havens freight motors. By the time Conrail took it over, it was down to a single track for most of its length, the Penn Central merger having rerouted most New England traffic via Selkirk. The tower was closed and boarded up, as we see it this day. Conrail eventually sold the line to the LIRR; at the end, it was common to see SELI come down with a trio of road units, usually GEs, and an SW 1500, which would work any freight on the line during the interchange move.

Heritage
Title:  Heritage
Description:  The LIRR was owned by the Pennsy from 1900 to 1965, when it was taken over by NYs MTA. During the PRR years, the influence of the parent was far reaching, even to this station doorway in Lynbrook on the south shore.

DLW freight house
Title:  DLW freight house
Description:  The Lackawanna freight house on Henry St in Binghamton. As you can see from the billboard, a new baseball stadium was set to be built there, once the old structure was torn down. That was easier said than done. Like many DLW buildings, this one was built for the ages. After several "modern" demolition procedures were tried, a few WW2 vets with demoltion experience were located. They were able to get the building torn down, and a new stadium hosting the Binghamton Mets opened in 1992. The first base side has a great view of the yard and Southern Tier main line.

LV bridge
Title:  LV bridge
Description:  The Lehigh Valley Auburn Branch left the main at Sayre PA, running east through Owego, then turning north to head to its namesake town of Auburn, at the north end of Owasco Lake. At Conrail start up, it was abandoned north of Dryden, with CR operating it under contract for NYDOT. That lasted only a few years, and the D&H ran the branch, now only as far as Harford Mills to a gas storage facility, before the Tioga Central took over operation. For much of the distance from Owego north, it followed NY 38, often within sight. Though the track had long been removed by this time, some structures remained, such as this through truss just south of a crossing near Groton.

Not a big deal til you need it
Title:  Not a big deal til you need it
Description:  This odd structure was rarely used during the time I lived in Endicott, which was a good thing. We are looking at the mounting for the flood gate that would be put across the tracks in the event the Susquehanna flooded. The gate would be dropped into the slot, and sandbags placed on either side. There was seepage-they were not water tight-but it kept floodwaters from getting through and inundating west Endicott. I saw the river come up over the tracks only twice in 18 years, but not here. That event was along the George F Highway in Endwell, near MP 219.

Water tank
Title:  Water tank
Description:  Erie had water tanks at various points along the line which became unnecessary once steam power was retired. The tanks themselves were dismantled, but the concrete bases remained in many locations, such as this on next to the Main Line near Andover, in the teeth of the climb to Tip Top.
